This extremely rare Confederate cutlass was made to appear as a Confederate Officer Sword. The guard is cast brass and in the style of a M1841 Naval Cutlass. There is an oval, almost round hole where the guard joins the pommel very much like the Thomas, Griswold cutlass. This seems to be for a knot or lanyard. The blade, 1 & 7/16 wide is slightly curved with a 17 & 3/4 inch unstopped fuller. Blade 1/4 inch thick blade has a length of 24 & 1/8 inches. The leather grip is russet color with fine twisted wire wrap. The pommel cap is well made and of the light Artillery style. The scabbard is back seamed black leather with Over lapped brass throat and drag with soldered seams. The top mount has a small, round frog stud. The leather frog that has obviously been with this sword for a long time based on the wear marks but no way of telling if it was made for this sword. The sword is excellent overall. The scabbard has one weak spot at the drag, otherwise the condition is super. This is the exact piece pictured in "Collecting the Confederacy" page 203. All Confederate Navy swords are rare and this is the rarest of Confederate Navy Swords. Completely Guaranteed to be authentic as are all of our offered items.
